New Vision Media Center

The New Vision Media Center was inspired by Dr. Bishara Awad, the President of Bethlehem Bible College, who saw a need to bring hope and encouragement to the Palestinian people. He saw that, a Media training program within the context of the Bible College could provide a way of developing skills, providing employment and a means of using media to promote a better society.

In January 2003 the first Media Training Project began. Fourteen students joined the two-year program, graduating in 2005. In April 2005, five of the graduates from the Media Training Program were hired to prepare and develop the center.

The program would include subjects as human rights, democracy, health, environment and local initiatives. The center expanded and became client-based, involved with producing film or audio according to the client
